I will put in a quick plug for YAHF.com, (Yet Another File Hoster) for pics.  It is run by a Farker and not as slick as some of the big boys, but it's pay for what you use and 50G is $5. Flat fee, not monthly. And pretty much no questions asked for what you post. I have been using them for years and never had a problem.

As far as voting, if you don't enable it, it won't show up unless whoever is looking at it has set preferences to see everything.Including tennis matches. In the past it wouldn't show in the statistics either, but I'm not sure if anyone is doing that any more.  It got hard to keep up with the changes.

Is Cindy the name of your dog? The turtle? A friend of yours?
 
‘’ 2013-04-24 12:52:05 PM  
Cindy is the turtle according the fellow walking her.  I've never met the man before, I just found him leisurely walking his turtle.

Must have been a slow walk. I don't think he sell his "daily walk with pet is good exercise" to his doctor.
Pretty funny though...."Cindy" Heheh.

Thrakkorzog: bighairyguy:

3 keys that worked for me finally were:

1.  Using an old family business on my resume resurrected to make it look like I was still working at least part time on my resume. If the HR people are going to throw out non working people just because..you really have to cheat to win.

2. Advice from Reddit users to always answer strongly agree or strongly disagree on the personality tests.

3. Getting a new suit.


Congrats from me as well! Anxiety reduction, I'm sure.

Your comments above remind me of this:
My son started a new "trend" in employment hiring last fall with his present employer. He was trying to get out of banking (manager) where they were using them like slaves.
He wanted to work for an airline (WestJet) in Canada. Very hard to get hired there. So he makes an introduction video complete with original song, camera work, editing etc (he's an amateur videographer/singer). No airline experience, but the bank gave him plenty of skills. Goes through interview process, which included some pretty weird group activities. Anyway, he gets the job, and his video becomes one of the standards for other future applicants. I don't know, things sure have changed for young perspective workers. One thing that is popular is writing your own reference letter and sending to a person who would endorse it. Makes sense, I guess.

I feel kind of sheepish with a few of you guys struggling to get work. I was unemployed exactly 2 weeks in Jan 1976. Other than Tech School I worked full time from 1978-2008. Paid a price though. Now unable to work because of impaired brain. I am grateful that I had a "union" job and worked for the government, as I have a 67% disability pension to 65. My wife has her own business in home, so we're okay.....for now.

Random commentary: Cindy is an aquatic turtle. Those guys are pretty darn fast even on land, so I wouldn't be too worried about the guy's slow walk.

My main question was did he REALLY need a leash for a turtle?  I mean if the WORST happened and it bolted for freedom, you could probably catch it.  Apparently, I could be wrong :)

Gwinney, could you please delete this entry.

For some reason when I go to upload the .gif fark keeps telling me that it is over 900k and rejects the entry.  However, the .gif is clearly only 460k...

...although now the plot thickens.  It was 460k when I uploaded the file to photobucket but when I do a right click "save as" from photobucket back to my machine the file is suddenly 900k!   What gives?  Anyone else having problems with photobucket doubling the size of your .gifs?  This is never happened to me before.  Odd.

Hi all. Dumb question.  I wanted to call on the power of Fark for Photoshops and/or captions as a prank to play on someone.  Is that an appropriate Photoshop contest subject?  Here is the 'O' in question.

operative word "you" there. for instance with my COPD over a distance it would escape. as ban_sidhe says they can be pretty quick.

ok i'm really not as enfeebled as that sounded but i don't run to get the mail anymore. i walk, sedately, enjoying the day and my yard.

Not if there is a lot of undergrowth and definitely not if she makes it to the water - which of course she would, being aquatic and all.

I was having problems with them cutting the file sizes and resolution in half. If their math is bad one way, it's probably bad in the opposite. All over now though, my CC on file with them expired. So I'm going to Flickr and hope that my free account bandwidth holds up on stuff that is already posted. Geordles report on what the BBB had to say about them is accurate in my time with them.

grampy: <proud papa>
After putting two kids through college and have never held decent jobs, I was elated to hear this evening that my third offspring who graduates in less than two weeks has just landed a full-time internship. It's with a Fortune 500 company where she will be pulling down a great salary doing a job that is exactly like what she's been wanting.

That's one of those leatherback turtles i think, their necks are as long as their bodies, stay way back from then when the turbo engages

 I don't know what that means.


Actually, I don't know either George. Apparently my wife tells me this a.m. that I was "off" yesterday. In other words, I was being an asshole and other things. I don't mean to be, and it doesn't happen very often. Apparently I tried to buy a new lawn tractor over the phone yesterday with her credit card. I am certain she said I could....the transaction declines of course. WTF? She was not happy.
I did the same thing last year by booking a cruise in the Caribbean, which I was sure was okay with her...oops. Never went.
You can see why she keeps me in the bedroom in front of my computer....
Much better today. Thank you Fark!

It's all good. It seemed like you thought I had stuck you in the ignore button world of ghosts and vapors. Enjoy these times and remember that you can get away with a lot when you know what's going on. I have a relative that I am quite sure uses her early stage Alzheimers when she just wants to mess with people and is actually in a lucid state. Might as well I say.

Life has conspired against me.
Total Fark is running out - but work is getting absolutely crazy. This it isn't really a problem. I have so little time, I have not been able to 'shop. So I think I'll stay away for a while. Unless I regain some time and inspiration. Between work, the pending divorce, Toastmasters and Family committments, my life remains full.
No offence.
